Welcome to the Old Dominion Chorus

Loudoun County's a cappella chorus for men.

About Us

Barbershop?!

We sing unaccompanied, a cappella music arranged in four parts (tenor, lead, baritone, and bass). We sing oldies, doo wop, spirituals, ballads, and, yes, some traditional barbershop songs. Think you know barbershop? Think again!

 

SingStrong 2016!

SingStrong was held April 1-3, 2016 at South Lakes High School in Reston. Students from around the DC Area gathered for concerts, classes and other educational opportunities.

A tag is the end of a song, where there is typically a long sustained note or swell, or something else that makes it the best part of a song. Barbershoppers love to sing tags at rehearsal, BHS competitions and events and just socially. The students were very interested in learning how to create 4-part harmony. And tags, which are typically the last 20-40 seconds of a song, are managable teaching sizes.
